    Anyone ever try to replace their formica lanes with real bowling lanes? Just saw these old lanes for sale online.

    Just getting into these. About to start a restoration thread on my "barn find", but was also wondering about this Chicago Coin model. No name I can see. Owner says 1960, but maybe it is 1960's?

    This isn't the actual machine.

    Any info appreciated.

    The one pictured seems to be a Chicago Coin "Fleetwood"

    1967

    That's not the one I picked up. But I may be able to, so just doing my homework.

    I grabbed a United Bowling Alley, non working is being kind.

    I'm trying to gauge a fair price for the Fleetwood. Or better yet, a good deal price.

    That's my Fleetwood that's in the local VFW. The original backglass's basic color is purplish, but I had
    one made the blue. Fleetwood is one of the last (maybe thee last) Chicago Coin Big Ball Bowlers with
    the larger score reels which I much rather have. In 1968, they went with the smaller and cheaper score reels.
    Back in the 90s, the Guy's Mom wanted it out of her garage, and I got a good deal picking it up for $275.00
    Of course it didn't look anything like it does in the picture. Other projects ones I picked up for $500.00 (in the 90s).
    What's the title of the one you have a chance to get?

    That's what I was trying to find out. No model name or specific year. Owner said 1960, but I was having a hard time nailing it down.

    The game looks well used, but I'm ok with that if the price is right.

    I haven't heard back from the owner yet, so we'll see.

    Any suggestions on a nice low starting offer for a working model?
